A Walking & Boat Tour to discover the Jewish Ghetto & lesser known districts of Venice.


Meeting Point. The Cruise ship Terminal/ your Hotel in Venice/ the Bus or Railway station Santa Lucia . (whichever suits you best)

We start on a private water taxi to admire the monumental facades of palaces on the Grand Canal & smaller canals (50 minutes).

Next we visit the Jewish quarter, a place with its own particular history & atmosphere - not to mention many tasty delicacies. The walking tour in the Cannaregio district will give us a better understanding of everyday life Past and Present.

We then move to the Rialto, Venice's erstwhile Trading and Financial centre.
We can adapt this walking tour to your particular interests and needs: if you like we can use a traghetto gondola to cross the Grand Canal - or explore the Castello district and its major monumental buildings such as the Gothic church of SS Giovanni e Paolo to see the graves of some very influential Doges, perhaps finishing in St Mark's Square visiting the S. Mark Basilica.
